So despite Spock having no clue what to do either (except the non-decision of rejoining the rest of the fleet, for......what precisely?) because he didn't get het up it was ok?

But Kirk actually being stubborn and refusing to blindly follow a bad order (and if a first officer can't question then what's his point?) that was not going to get them any closer to solving the problem is not?

Spock was running away from the problem, Kirk wanted to face it.
